This Whole30 Costco Must Haves list is a perfect guide to take with you through the aisles of the big box store to keep you on track!

COSTCO! Everyone’s favorites big big big box store.  This list will help you navigate the huge aisles of this magical place and keep on your Whole30 train.  I also have a list for Amazon, Trader Joe’s, Thrive Market, Aldi, Target, Sprouts, Walmart and Ralphs/Kroger for you to get all of your shopping done!

Packaged Meats:

  • American BBQ Fully Cooked Grilled Chicken – These only have chicken, water and salt and are great to have on hand to throw in your lunch for the day or chop up for chicken salad!
  • Dietz & Watson Organic Roasted Turkey Breast – Give it up for compliant deli meat! You can make a sandwich wrap with collard greens or even make a little sandwich on sweet potato toast.
  • Kirkland Smoked Pulled Pork – This stuff is great in a pinch when you want pulled pork but don’t want to spend time slow cooking a pork butt.  It is yummy to mix with compliant bbq sauce and serve on sweet potato toast or on a salad!

  • Aidells Chicken & Apple Sausage – my one true love.  I’ve been using these since my first Whole30 over 2 years ago and they continue to be a staple in our fridge.  With some scrambled eggs and avocado they make the perfect Whole30 breakfast!
  • TWR Grass-fed beef junior franks and polish sausage – super clean ingredients and so perfect for quick protein!
  • True Story Organic Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage – These are great for sautéing with veggies for dinner or grilled to get a nice char and served with some bell peppers and onions.

Pantry Staples:

  • Kirkland Organic Chicken Stock – great for soups or making pan sauces!
  • Chosen Foods Avocado Oil – I have a little oil dispenser I keep on my counter so I love buying this big bottle at Costco to fill it up! I pour this stuff on veggies to roast them, in a skillet to brown chicken and everything in between.
  • Kirkland Organic Marinara Sauce – I just love marinara!  I keep this stuff stocked for making my Cheesless Chicken Parm, Slow Cooker Turkey Bolognese & Zucchini Noodles and just to pour on veggies or spaghetti squash as a sauce.
  • Garlic Powder – We honestly just bought this while I was getting stuff for this haul because we ALWAYS have it in the house!  I sprinkle garlic powder on my veggies every night and swear it just makes everything better – so this big Costco version is crucial.

Packaged Side Dish:

  • Main St. Bistro Sea Salt & Black Pepper Oven Roasted Potatoes – The section filled with sides is packed with mostly longggg ingredient lists. But when I saw these I got so excited! Just potatoes, avocado oil, salt and pepper.  They are already cooked so you just choose to either roast them or microwave to heat up!

Non-Dairy Milks:

  • Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk – There are a lot of coconut milks out there that are not compliant so go for this 6 pack at Costco and you will be set!  I use it in my Curried Turkey Sloppy Joes in Sweet Potato Bowls, in my curry sauce or even in coffee!
  • Kirkland Organic Unsweetened Almond Non-Dairy Beverage – Now I will be the first to tell you that I love to make my own nut milk and think it is the way to go for your whole30.  But let’s be real, sometimes convenience is nice!  This one has additives but all of them are compliant so it’s not a bad default to have in your pantry.

Spreads:

  • Organic Wholly Guacamole Minis – Easy and quick, healthy fat that is flipping delicious!! I put these on taco bowls, my eggs in the morning and basically any and every meal.
  • Organic Creamy Almond Butter – I love this big jar at Costco to spread on sweet potato toast, or to dip apples in for my sweet night time treat.

Dried Fruit:

  • Made in Nature Dried Mangoes – I was hesitant putting these on because they can definitely be a food with no brakes and easy to rely on for a sugar fix. But if you can control it, I love adding a few chopped up to salad or having a couple with a meal. You have to know yourself and if you can handle them in the house though!

Drinks:

  • Spindrift – I love that they have this 30 pack at costco now!  They also have la croix but not always the flavors I like – this one has so much variety, which is perfect!

    This is a great list! I see so many Paleo/Whole30 blog posts and most of the items are in hard-to-find specialty stores or at Whole Paycheck. These options are accessible and sound yummy!

    Hey there, great list with recipes. The pulled pork sounds amazing! The chicken stock however has sugar cane and all sorts of other no nos in it. Still a go to product for me but a no no on the whole30. There is a beef stock they sell though that is a bit more compliant.

    I checked the Kirkland chicken stock at mt. local Costco and it had cane sugar so be careful before buying if doing Whole 30

    My Costco lifesavers this Whole30 have been Victoria White Linen spaghetti sauce (compliant and yummy and cheap enough to feed my whole family!) and Teton Waters Ranch grass feed beef sausages!

    I took a special trip to Costco for these items and the first one I found, the broth, has cane sugar in it. Isn’t that not allowed on whole30?

      Oh no! That is weird, mine doesn’t have sugar in it. They might be different in different states? Always good to double check ingredient lists!
